This is where I talk about some products I've been loving lately...

Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser
This is a gentle, creamy gel cleanser that always leaves my skin feeling clean, refreshed and conditioned. It supposedly works well as a makeup remover/cleanser but for me it's the perfect morning cleanser and this is the one I've been reaching for the most lately.

Glossier Balm Dotcom
This is a nourishing skin salve that can be used all over. I've been carrying it my bag and I like it best as a lip balm and to banish errant dry patches. It makes a wonderful lip balm because a little goes a long way and it covers with a smooth, matte finish. I plan on purchasing the Mint and Coconut versions next.

Marlowe No. 023 Hand Cream
This hand cream is formulated with a lovely blend of natural ingredients like passionflower fruit extract, green tea extract, willow bark extract and deep sea algae extract. I love how it's super emollient and quickly absorbs without feeling greasy. Plus the minimal packaging is cool and it's only $5.99!

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
This lip sleeping mask has been my secret to soft, flake free lips all summer long. Before I started using it, I would have to apply a thick coating of lip balm before bed if I didn't want to wake up to dry lips in the morning. This mask has a smooth creamy consistency and just the thinnest layer is needed for it to work it's magic overnight. I use it 3 nights a week and it's always a treat. It comes with the cutest little spatula too.

Zak Original Unscented Deodorant*
I prefer my deodorants to be natural and unscented so this one fits the bill. What's more, it's made with a blend of coconut oil and plant based ingredients with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids that repair and replenish your cells. I haven't had any skin issues while using this and it works to keep me dry and smell-free for entire days.

  1. That Milky Jelly cleanser sounds great. I just bought an almond oil based cleanser, I'm wondering how well it will do.

    Glossier Balm dotcom seems like a great balm. It is a nice idea to carry it in a purse, so it is always at hand. It is great that it can be used as a balm for any part of the body, not just for as lip balm. We have a great Croatian product here that does just that, it called Zagrebački melem.

    That hand cream with natural ingrediants sounds fantastic! I would love to try that one.

    Have a lovely day!

  2. Hello Rowena! Curious to try everything, especially the cleanser and the lip sleeping mask. At the moment Im using one from Guerlain and is very good as well! Enjoy your day! xo

  3. Haven't tried any of these!

  4. Great products!!!!
    Have a good week!!!

  8. I haven't tried a single one of these products but they sound fab, especially the Glossier brand!

  9. I'd love to try Laneige lip mask, along with the yogurt mask you have reviewed lately, but I can't find them on Amazon at a reasonable price :-( Baci, Valeria - Coco et La vie en rose NEW FASHION POST

  10. Glossier is a brand that I really want to try in the future, been reading so many good things about it and now that I see it made it into you favourite list too, I know it's for real. Laneige has a lip mask?! Gosh, I really need to pay more attention.

  11. Good handcreams are so hard to find! I would like to try this one after reading your review.

  12. These sounds great, I've only tried two things from Glossier in the past in a kit, and I think I did really like them. Will have to check out these other products. The Laneige lip sleeping mask sounds interesting. Enjoy your day!

  13. The lip mask sounds like something I need in my life. Right now my lips are not at their best. I am enjoying Vichi's cleansing milk 3in1 purete thermale. It's so mild but it does a fabulous job. This booster thingy Energie de Vie by Lancome is also quite nice. Have you tried any of thse, Rowena?

  14. Interesting products! Kisses:))


  15. Great review sweetheart...thx for sharing!

  16. Got hard of Glossier before, it sounds like a brand I'd like to know more about, do you have more products by them?

  17. I haven't tried Glossier, but the cleanser sounds really nice :)

  18. Oh these all sound pretty good but especially the sleeping mask, though I still need to use this masks you gave me. Though today I am wearing one of the polishes.

  19. Oooh I've been wanting to try a lip mask because all year I've had terribly dry lips and nothing seems to work on me. Someone recommended an overnight mask so I'll look into this one. Hope you've been well, I've been terribly MIA and struggling to keep up. Not struggling so much with KDramas! Bahahaha. I finished up your list (except for Let's Eat, still have season 2 to watch) and started with Mr Back. Hit me up with more suggestions (if you have them) Girl I am obsessed! :oP


  20. I haven't tried any of these products but I so want to try Glossier products. I have heard such good things about the brand. They don't ship to Canada though :(
    Great round-up! x

  21. I love the milky jelly cleanser! Thanks for the visit.

  22. The cleanser sounds really good! Great picks x


  23. I need to jump on the Glossier bandwagon Rowena! You've listed several products that I would love to try. That Laneige lip sleeping mask sounds like a treat for the lips. Different too. I always learn so much from you :D

  24. That hand cream looks really great! I'm always looking for a moisturizing cream to put in my purse!

  25. I had not heard before about masks lips'm imginando that is perfect for keeping lips hydrated, nice review Rowena, kisses.

  26. Lip sleeping mask? I don't think I have heard about such but it sounds very nice. I always use lip balm before I go to bed, so that my lips aren't dry on the next morning. The handcream actually looks quite big, maybe it's from the photo. Lately I am loving a Victoria Secret fragrance mist. Happy Saturday Rowena!

  27. i never have thought to care for my lips! and the odd thing is that they need a lot of caring!
